UNLIREC contributes to improving public policy frameworks on arms control through a series of capacity-building trainings. These in person and virtual courses strengthen a State’s response to public security challenges – mainly on preventing and combating illicit arms and ammunition trafficking – through increased knowledge, practical training, inter-institutional coordination, and the sharing of best practices. These trainings are tailor-made to each State and contribute to the country’s comprehensive and holistic national arms control strategies and programmes. 

The following courses are delivered by UNLIREC expert staff and consultants:

  • Firearms and Ammunition Evidence Management Course (EMC)
  • Course on Combatting Arms and Ammunition Trafficking (CAAT)
